    YES! And I have ALL of his albums, and it's hard to collect them, trust me.

    didnt think he'd go to coachie. but after he got listed onto sxsw, there was hope. i wonder what new material he'll have on showcase. same group lineup; omar, juan, deantoni, lars, marcel?

    as unlikely as it is, i'd love to see Frusciante join him for this performance, esp. given that they released 2 albums online last year & John is ostensibly not doing anything right now...

    No it isn't. Go to Waterloo in Austin and they have boxes full of everything this guy has ever done.

    Also, have you ever heard of amazon.com? It's pretty cool.

    So excited to finally see his solo work. This is icing on the cake for me.

    Maybe Cedric will pop his head in and they'll do a TMV tune.

    not sure if youre familiar with the coma (as theres another thread about this over there) but there was a mention on how it may, or may not, be "el grupo nuevo" with him. just have to wait and see. seeing the "el grupo.." lineup make its first public appearance would be nice, it guarantees cedric and zach hill. either way, even if omar decided to do an acoustic solo set, im there.
    atencion!

    i don't care about any of this unless its an ATDI reunion, and then it will be the #1 most important thing of the weekend.

    This is gonna get way rad. I have to say, that this year has the weirdest coefficient of lame headliners vs quality, well curated experimental music.
    1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:

    omar rodriguez lopez - bandcamp.com

    definitely look into all of them, since they all vary quite a bit. some staples to check out; "xenophanes," "cryptomnesia," "old money," and "calibration."

    I saw them at the Troubadour last year and it was an incredible show, the band really enjoyed themselves and were really on that night. I loved the addition of vocals of Ximena, very good addition to his band. I released a podcast with a ton of Omar stuff that was approved by Sargent House, definitely check it out if you don't know where to start and are wondering if you want to check out the music of Omar Rodriguez lopez live at Coachella. If you have heard the mans music and you enjoy, check it out anyways.

    CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS SHOW!

    Omar is gonna put on an AMAZING show! I saw him perform his solo stuff a few months ago at the Troubadour in Hollywood and I was blown away. I've been an avid TMV follower forever, hence the name <----(RapidFireTollBooth). With Cedric having Vocals on most of Omar's solo work you can count on seeing him on the polo fields!

    Omar Sampler of all kinds of his "solo" work (with all of his incarnations besides TMV) being released on Record Store Day. $19 for a 37-track double CD. Awesome!!! I really want the deluxe vinyl box set, but need to save for Coachella.

    Definitely looking forward to Omar's set. Seen TMV live, and they were amazing...I except Omar to put on a hell of a set. For the ones that are not familiar with his work, I would suggest: A Manual Dexterity, Calibration, Cryptomnesia, and Xenophanes.
